Hacker fakes German minister's fingerprints using photos of her hands

Jan Krissler used high resolution photos, including one from a government press office, to successfully recreate the fingerprints of Germany’s defence minister

Yep. Biometrics is useless. Anyone that talks about it postively is either trying to sell you something or goddamn retarded and talking out their ass.

The only situation in which it can be used safely is when it is just one of many layers. As in, there are guards physically present and at least one security camera pointed at the scanner. In other words, useless. You can't simply can't trust it. Not to mention the false positive and false negative rates.

At best, it's the equivalent of someone flashing an ID card from across the room. It isn't even as strong as your username or email address, because at least you can change those and you're not literally leaving a trail of your credentials in your wake.

Every consumer biometrics system on the market can be defeated by a layman with an imagination and a weekend. Every high end, outrageously expensive system on the market can be beaten by hobbyists. Unless you're talking about implanting chips into your body, in which case you're really talking about cryptography, not biometrics.

>Also reported at the conference was another security hole seemingly straight out of science-fiction: a so-called “corneal keylogger”. The idea behind the attack is simple. A hacker may have access to a user’s phone camera, but not anything else. How to go from there to stealing all their passwords?

One way, demonstrated on stage, is to read what they’re typing by analysing photographs of the reflections in their eyes. Smartphone cameras, even front-facing ones, are now high-resolution enough that such an attack is possible.

This was the day my dreams of a biometric authenticating future were gone. If a photo of a finger print does the trick, a photo of a retina probably would too. Granted retinal scans would need to be update with age, diabetes, and cataracts.

And now you will see a bunch of people deleting photos from facebook/instagram that show their hands in fear of people recreating a print to be able to get into their iPhone/Pad.

yep fingerprints should not be used as passwords
They cant be changed so leaked is leakes and stays leaked

>high res

Not even close. When I send dick picks from my LG G3 the girls can barely find my cock.

Good luck leaving that top secret high-tech research facility after that gruesome lab accident where you lost your hands/fingers while the incineration countdown is ticking.

Passwords you can't change.

Worthless.

A microscope probably wouldn't help.
